Learn the proper way to lay sod. Before you use sod, you need to prepare the soil. Weed the soil well. Till the entire lawn area. Compact the soil gently but firmly to be certain that it's indeed flat. Moisten the soil thoroughly. Lay the sod in straight rows, ensuring the seams meet perfectly. You want the sod to end up as a flat and even surface. If there are any gaps in between the sod pieces, then you can fill these in with some soil. The sod needs to be watered daily for two weeks, by which time it'll be rooted and ready to walk on.
